Students of all ages and professions, from over 100 different countries, have come to study English at the University of Miami Intensive English Program. We value our students' uniqueness and diversity. We also understand, however, that studying overseas for the first time can be challenging. That's why at the IEP students can rely on our faculty and administrative staff for friendly advice and guidance. We're here to help students feel at ease and adjust more comfortably to the language and culture of the United States. Additionally, IEP students have access to many of the services offered by other offices around campus.
